Muff Question

Postby ghenry » Wed Jun 24, 2009 1:21 am

Any particular earmuffs/plugs that work better or more comfortable than others? Shooting range earmuffs or plugs as good as any?

rjonesboy,

I agree!, Those are words to live by... :bounce: :lol:

Ghenry, they all have a decibel rating the higher the better. better ones are in the lower 30's if I remember right. The more important thing is ones that are comfortable. (like on HOT days when your sweating etc.)

Back in the day we just had a local dive club. Didn't use no ear protection ! Things must have changed for you whipper snappers.

Yeah, thick, insulating muffs went out of style in the 70's/early 80's. Now the racing style or "barely there" is preferred due to the greenhouse effect.

Whitebear, back in those days I always taped my ears back so they could not be pulled so hard at the dive club...
If I would have known the air was so thin here, I would have bought more blades...

custom molded plugs work really well. Usually can be had at gun shows.

Its about all we used in shooting. I moved up to an airboat and everyone had muffs so I dug mine out. And was later pointed out they don't work as well as even disposable plugs. Went back to plugs and Crow was right.

I found some at academy that have a neoprene strap connecting the two mufs and they are low profile with a 24 or 28 db rating (cant remember which one). The muffs fit my head real well and do not rub a sore on my blad head - LOL
